So why would Fox push the second episode of season 2 to episode 6? Who knows! Anyways the episode that is supposed to be episode 2 is Time again and world written by Jacob Epstein.
The episode starts off with Arturo and Remy drinking in a bar about to miss the slide. They head outside to find a private place to slide. On the way they see a car crash, followed by a shoot out. Now on this world all the women have mustaches. Very weird, anyways Wade runs up to the man who falls out of the car and is dying. He gives Wade a code word and a chip to hold on to. Quinn pulls her up and they rush to catch up to Remy and Arturo who opens the vortex. Wade makes it in just in time.
Arturo tells Wade not to become emotionally invested in the world's they land on. Now what I don't get, why would he even bring that up? We know that this world is basically the same just a few hours behind but they don't know that yet. They have 36 hours on this world that is all but the same as the last except that the women look more like we know them to. Hairless faces. The same car crash and shoot out as before, only this time the person who was killed on the last world does the killing. Once more Wade runs up to the man who is shot just like before. This man happens to be a cop.
The sliders once more go to their normal hotel run by the same guy on every world. The hotel makes them give finger prints before checking in. I don't know if I'd be ok with that. The hotel operator immediately calls someone to report the sliders.
Wade keeps beating herself up over what happened when two people with guns burst in and tells them that they all need to forget everything that happened earlier. No matter what the police asks they have to pretend nothing happened. They will be watching them.
Remy and Arturo want to run out to the country but Wade wants to stay. After all both men who died on both worlds told her the same name. Quinn ends up going with Arturo and Remy leaving Wade alone. But only for a few seconds before coming back to help her. After all they can't leave one of their own behind.
Wade tells the cop, who all wear skirts because why not. I guess they are Scottish on this world. The police take down everything she tells them and get ready to go arrest the person she told them about. The two people who broke into their hotel room are cops, Quinn and Wade spot them in the police station but it doesn't look like they saw our heroes.
The hotel manager gets arrested, things aren't looking good for the sliders. Once more Remy wants to run. Wade wants to try and figure out what is on the chip but Quinn points out that it is from another world. It turns out that the man they turned into the police is one of the last people who wants the Constitution to be the law of the land. On this world and most likely the last, J. Edgar Hoover became President and declared Martial Law.
It also turns out that this world has the same CD formats as the last world. Wade and Quinn manage to open the file and find a digital copy of the US Constitution. Remy references his group and it tips off the store manager that they are not supposed to be there. He takes off like a bat out of hell.
Now the sliders are looking for the supreme court judge that they sold out to the police to try and set things right. I hate to say it but if Wade just listened to Arturo they wouldn't have to be going through all of this. The sliders are having no luck finding him.
They find out about a pirate radio and a woman named Natalie. Quinn tells her about the police and knowing about the judge and shows her the chip he has. She tells him to put it away and to follow her. It turns out that the Judge is about to surrender and read the constitution on the air. Before that happens the police storm the club. Everything starts to fall apart. The sliders and Natalie escape out the back and take off.
The judge is arrested. The hope for democracy in America is dead. The sliders have 8 hours left. Remy and Arturo have no idea where Quinn or Wade are and they are getting worried. Quinn and wade show up and feel the two of them in on what happened. They come up with a plan, Remy shows up at the police station and tells the cops he wants the Judge to be set free with a pardon or they will go live with the constitution. They try to keep Remy in jail but he tells them that if his friends don't hear from it they will leak it on the internet.
Later that night they show up ready to exchange the only copy of the constitution for the judge's freedom. Arturo is against it but Quinn points out that good ideas are useless with out good men to fight for them. Arturo counters by telling him that the idea of freedom is repeated every generation but only one ever came up with the constitution and had the impact on the world that the US did.
The cops show up with the judge. Now my question is, once they have the disk what is to stop them from killing them all. Quinn solves this by saying they won't give them the disk till he is away. The judge gets in the car and Wade gives them the disk. Letting America's true values be lost to time. It is a sad sad day.
The sliders say goodbye to the judge and Wade tells him things are as hopeless as they look. with that the sliders jump into the vortex, leaving this world behind. The next day, on that world in the computer store a few people find a file Wade left on the computer. It is the constitution and it quickly spread around the world. Wade saved the day!
